Still Pics to Animation

Discussion in 'Digital Photography' started by Andrew V. Romero, Sep 25, 2003.

  1. I would like to make a movie out of some of the Jpegs from my digital
    camera. It would be fun to be able to do some "cheap" animation with
    these pictures like the public television shows do with still pictures.
    They basically have a still picture but then have the camera move
    around and zoom in on different parts of that still picture. I have
    Strata 3d which is a 3d animation program, and it does allow you to put
    a JPeg as a texture for one of the objects, so I have played around with
    making a rectangle then putting a picture on it for texture, then using
    the camera to move around this picture. This seems to work okay, but if
    I use a large image (bigger than 200kb) or if I make the screen bigger
    (for better resolution), I get a lot of error codes and the animation
    will not render. So I am wondering if there is some other software that
    can do this type of animation (preferrable free or cheap??)? The Strata
    program is not really designed for doing this type or work, but I figure
    there must be some programs that are specifically designed for this. My
    computer is a Gateway 2000, 2.33ghz, 512 rd ram with a NVIDIA FeForce2
    MX400 graphics card.

    Thanks for any ideas,

    Likewise, I am still waiting for nothing... What I am hoping for if it exist
    on market that can turn a regular picture (like a face) into animation. You
    know? Yours looking for a movie, mine is still images.

  3. There is a few programs that may do what you are looking for such as
    Ulead's photo express. You can load a picture then morph it some using
    different frames, it will then export each individual shot as a picture
    file, you can then combine then for a morph movie or use the individual

    I am looking more for a software program with a movable camera view.
